    I used to think so as well.

    Now I think that it's probably more or less even - much like the country - with perhaps slightly more conservatives.

    On the other hand, has anyone ever done a study/poll or whatnot on that?

    I've not heard of it, if so...

    The only way for people to disagree about this is to make conspiracy theories out of it.

    Was it intentional? Probably not, but if it was its criminal and wrong.
    Was it negligent and reflexs a poorly run voter system in New York? Probably, and its also criminal and wrong.

    There's no room for disagreement unless we bring it issues ENTIRELY unrelated to the issue, like Obama's claims about whatever and what-not, or turn it into a conspiracy theory about massive voter fraud, acorn, whatever else.

    No. Because Republicans wanting Democratic voting blocks to stay home is not a conspiracy. It's an undisputable fact of American politics.

    And vice versa.

    Of course any given politician and/or political party wants their opponent's supporters to stay home and not vote.

    Edit: However, if attempts to promote/cause such violate a law, then that is unacceptable.

    In this case, I would say either someone screwed up and they literally couldn't send out the forms on time, or it's a half-assed attempt to actually prevent the military members of the voters in question from voting - in which case, I would hope none of the officials were actually aware of such an attempt, or they are most likely to be kicked out of office.

    Probably like it is an undisputable fact that people who hate the government of a country hate that country, right Hatuey?!?!?

    If they make threads about praising that nutty Nobel Prize committee for choosing people they like? Sure. I mean it's not like you have any other reason to approve of this pick other than the fact they chose somebody you approved of. Correct? Now move on Taipei man. You're boring me.

    Wanting them to stay home and stopping them from voting are two very different things.

    Yes. Obama stated that Republicans want the first.
